I wouldnt recommend getting an apartment here unless you want to get scammed out of money on your security deposit and hear everything your upstairs neighbors do. I would get woken up in the middle of the night to whoever lived above me. Its not worth the high rent prices. The parking is awful. If I got back past about 7pm at night, I would have to try to find visitor parking spaces that were a pretty far walk from my place. Upon moving out, I called to specifically ask about the process of dropping off my keys, parking pass, gym fob and pool pass. I was told by the office staff that I could leave all of my paperwork and keys/passes in the dropbox. I spent the whole day moving, and in the evening, I double and even triple checked my envelope to place in the dropbox. A month later, I received a return check for my security deposit. I was charged $150 for missing keys and passes. I've filed a dispute with Avalon's Customer Care Center, but after speaking with the office today, I was told that the gym key fob, parking pass and mail key were missing. At the end of the day after all of the stress of moving, I can't believe that I'm being charged $150 for the front office staff's incompetence. I don't know how hard it is to take things out of an envelope and account for them, but the staff apparently can't do that well. I'm not sure why I was advised to use the dropbox if such carelessness is exercised there. I definitely would have thoroughly documented and handed my things to someone in person if I had known how ridiculous this would be. Who knows - at the end of the day, they still may have found a way to scam me. Live somewhere else or literally sit down, hold their hand, and watch the office staff account for your things.

This is the absolute worst community I have ever lived in. Associate who showed me the apartment swore he had a first floor without steps - lied. Apartment was on the Second Floor. Coldest apartment ever. Windows were old and not insulated, slider not insulated. Don't even get me started on the drafts from the fire place. Floors were so uneven my china cabinet almost fell over. You could hear everything going on above and below. They charge you for everything and even after you move out, they make deductions to your refund. In addition to the really bad apartment, the neighborhood was terrible - lots of cars broken in to, lights in parking lot out that the community refused to fix. Oh yeah - only 1 dumpster in the entire section of the community. Pets are allowed on the premises, but there is no dog park and you'll get poop on the grass outside your windows - tenants do no clean up after their dogs. This place is a disgrace.

Line in Avalon apartments and you'll -pay for THEIR carpet in the whole apartment and for professional cleaning of THEIR apartment after you done with them (which is ridiculous) -enjoy dirty gym -swim in the pool with cold water -pay for your car getting towed for NO reason -pay all kind of hidden FEES (yes there are a lot of them including $400 for using "wonderful" amenities like dirty gym and swim pool with cold water) Just prepare to PAY and PAY a lot for NOTHIG if you want to live there. They LOVE FEES at this place. Their management is there to charge you and charge as much as possible. To squeeze anything they can out of you!!!!

THE NEGATIVE REVIEWS ABOUT CRAZY FEES AFTER MOVE OUT ARE 100% ACCURATE Only choose Avalon if you want to deal with having your car vandalized and then being charged ridiculous fees upon move out. The "security" is non-existent. My boyfriend's tire was stolen off of his car in the spot directly in front of our apartment and he had to pay ~$500 to replace it and buy wheel locks so it wouldn't happen again in the future. When he called management to inform them about this, they didn't offer any form of help or even reassurance that security was looking into the constant vandalism going on. One time we even came home to find our sliding glass, which had been closed and locked, open in the middle of the day. Thankfully, nothing seemed to have been stolen. A couple of weeks before moving out I found a small house cockroach in my kitchen. We kept our apartment very clean and had never had a problem with bugs before so I'm guessing it came from a neighboring apartment (or one of the communal dumpsters, for all I know, since they were always overflowing with trash). Luckily I never saw another one but it definitely made me paranoid for the rest of my time there. They hit you with ridiculous fees upon move out. They charged us a $110 "cleaning fee" after we meticulously spent two days cleaning the apartment. When I tried to dispute this, they told me too bad and that the company they contract with charges the same flat fee whether they do the smallest amount of cleaning or a lot of cleaning. So, basically, if you do move in, don't bother cleaning your apartment when you go since you'll have to pay either way. They also charged us ~$800 to repair a small patch of carpet that was torn up by my cat. I also tried to dispute this charge as excessive and was given the same answer: too bad, deal with it. After reading multiple other negative reviews of them, it seems they do this to a lot of their tenants. Overall, I would not recommend Avalon at all.
